गोदाकाठचा भाजीबाजार पूर्ववत करावा – विजय भदाणे (लोकमत)

The Godavari in Nashik is not only a source of water, rather the riverscape act as a social space for several communities living along the banks of the river. Top-down visions of development through several beautification schemes, in reality are erasing multiple local connections with the river which are indeed required for the sustaining the unique identity of the Godavari Riverfront in Nashik.

And many locals feel that the vegetable market was an integral part of Nashik’s local culture.

I am an architect turned anthropologist. After finishing my Masters in Anthropology from University of Pune, I was working with Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Pune under a project funded by UNICEF and Integrated Child Development Scheme, Government of Maharashtra. During which I was stationed in Nandurbar District of Maharashtra (which is predominantly a tribal region) as a Field Research officer. Currently, I am a doctoral candidate in Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali, India. My current research explores the interaction of the cultural-religious, the political-economic and the ecological dimensions of the river in Nashik city in Maharashtra. Broadly, investigating how the multiple perspectives of a natural resource overlap, contradict, challenge and support each other, thus shaping the urban landscape and producing socio-spatial inequalities.
